Key features of Db2 Server for VSE and VM

Relational database support

Db2 Server for VSE and VM provides relational database support for the z/VSE, VM/ESA and z/VM operating system environments. It is the basis for a robust on demand solution environment because of its reliability, scalability, manageability and interoperability with on demand applications through Db2 Connect® and WebSphere.

Support for TCP/IP

Support for TCP/IP enables you to access your data from any client that supports TCP/IP over Distributed Relational Database Architecture (DRDA®). The ability to restart TCP/IP support automatically after a TCP/IP outage keeps your data accessible to your clients.

Support for stored procedures

Support for stored procedures and stored-procedure result sets give you the ability to reduce the amount of data that flows across your network.

VM Data Spaces support

VM Data Spaces support (VMDSS) can dramatically increase the performance of Db2 Server for VM.

DataPropagator capture

DataPropagator capture tracks logged activity on specified tables, so that the DataPropagator apply product can propagate those changes to replicas of those tables.

Control center

The control center lets you monitor many aspects of database operations, including online archive support.

Data restore

The data restore feature provides additional archiving and recovery capabilities.
